Matching gifts are a great way to increase your contribution to the Paladin Club and Furman’s student-athletes without having to reach deeper into your pockets! When your company gives a matching gift, you receive Paladin Club credit for the match. For example, if you donate $250, and your employer matches for an additional $250, you receive benefits for the Knight ($500) level of Paladin Club membership.
Submitting a matching gift request is easy:
- Obtain a matching gift form from your employer. These
forms should be available from a Human Resources/Personnel
representative or online.
- Fill out the top portion of the form, which usually requests
information that identifies you as an employee of the company, as
well as the date and amount of your gift. Please enter Furman
University as the recipient institution.
- Send the form along with your check
(made payable to Furman University) to the following
Furman University Paladin Club
3300 Poinsett Highway
Greenville, SC 29613
If you make your gift online or over the phone, please let us know that you are sending a matching gift form separately by calling (864)294-3469 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will complete the rest of the form and submit the match
request to your company.
- Your company will submit payment directly to Furman.
Note: Each company operates matching gift programs differently, so please check with your Human Resources department for your employer’s specific policy.
If you have any questions about the matching gift process or would like to find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please contact us.
